Agar furious over exclusion from squad
Australia left-arm spinner Ashton Agar is disappointed with the selectors after his exclusion from the ODI squad for India series without informing any valid reason.
Just after Nathan Coulter-Nile slammed the Australian selectors for poor miscommunication, it’s now Ashton Agar, who is absolutely clueless for not being selected for the ODI series against India.
Agar was part of the ODI series against South Africa in November where he didn’t get an opportunity to play in any of the ODIs. The player also complained about the poor communication and revealed that no proper reason was informed to him for his exclusion.
“Recently, it has been pretty vague, to be honest. I got told pretty much just keep trying to get better. That’s what I was told. I guess I mustn’t have run the drinks well enough last time, because I didn’t really get a crack at that before.”
“This one was probably a little bit tougher because it was a little bit confusing. But it is what it is. All I can do now is get better. Find ways to evolve as a cricketer and really just have fun. I’m just going to do it my way now and really enjoy it. If that means opportunities come, they come,” Agar said.
However, the Australia skipper Tim Paine denied to such complaint and said the communication between selectors and players after the Sydney Test match was fine.
“I’ve personally never had an issue. The selectors are doing their best to communicate with everyone. When players get dropped they are normally not too happy so it’s a difficult situation to be in,” he said.
Australia will play three ODIs against the men in blue. The first ODI is set to played on 12th January at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
